in eastern ukraine support russia and view the government in kiev as hostile. today, both the government and the separatists say two ukrainian helicopters were shot down in the fighting. this amateur video shows a plume of smoke where the helicopter apparently crashed, though no wreckage has been found so far. the ukrainian government also claimed a surface-to-air missile brought down one of them. that hasn't been verified, but u.s. intelligence sources are treating the report as credible. one of the pilots, visibly injured, was later paraded around in a video released by pro-russian militants. ukrainian forces appear to stop at the edge of the city. vyacheslav ponomaryov, the self- proclaimed mayor of slavyansk, claimed there had been many casualties. "we were attacked, "he said. "our city is under siege." the offensive came as violence ratcheted up again. yesterday, militants took over the prosecutor's office in donetsk. police attempted to fight back with tear gas and stun grenades, but were overwhelmed by the crowd and fled. >> pelley: clarissa ward is joining us from donetsk. claris

politics? >> of course they are. remember obama said prior to ris reelect to the president of russia i will have more flexibility after the election. he is telling the democrats i hear you, don't worry. obamacare, keystone pipeline and now coal admissions. the president of the united states is using his power and influence to change the outcome of an election. you can fool some of the people some of time but not enough this time. it is reflected in his poplarity. >> senator inholf is the one that brought all of these allegations. he wrote a letter and let's look at it. he says is appears in the delay in the publication may have been done to lesson the impact of the president's harmful policies on the mid-term election. he said the epa is electionering with climate rules. did you believe that to believe the case? >> yes. i actually think they are playing politics. there is a flip side, too. james inholf is the biggest climate denier in the house and congress. he makes more money, the sector that gives the most money is oil and gas. he gives $315,000 from them over the last five years. h
are standing, are sanctions impacting russia or its supporters in eastern ukraine? >> that's a very difficult question to ask. you'd have to say the ultimate intention of these sanctions is to prevent a russian invasion of eastern ukraine and if that invasion does not happen, was it due to the sanctioners not. i suspect we might be arguing about that for months or years to come, but as rewards the conduct of pro russian groups in the east, they don't seem deterred at all, quite the contrary. they seem more emboldened on each day, going very much on the offensive, they are on the front, sanctions or not. >> barnaby phillips for us in donetsk in eastern you a crane, thank you. >> parliamentary elections, first time they have headed to the polls since the u.s. pulled out in 2011. there are reports of attacks outside the capitol. we are at a polling side in baghdad. how has the turnout been so far where you are? >> this polling station in central baghdad, they are voting just through those doors, has about 3,500 registered voters, about 1,000 people have turned up so far. now what an independent
's give you a little more of your headlines at this hour. we start with sanctions against russia. certainly not slowing the violence in ukraine. hundreds of rebels stormed the government buildings. separatists raised their flag. they fired on police. this aggression comes in the face of new sanctions from the u.s. and european union which don't seem to be slowing the russians down. >>> amanda knox fighting back against a new report by an italian appeals court explaining their conviction by blaming knox for fatally stabbing her british roommate over a fight about mon money. she says the new claims are unsupported by evidence or logic since her dna was not foundnd i meredith kurcher's room. she was convicted again when italy's highest court ordered new appeals trial. >>> minimum wage taking center stage today in washington. president obama fresh off his week long asia trip will push for an increase from $7.25 to $10.10. democrats appear to be making this an election year issue while conceding they probably don't have the votes. a long shot procedural vote is needed today. no republ

buildings, firing on police as sanctions against russia seem to be doing nothing to stem the violence. we are live in ukraine. it seems the crisis is escalating. >> reporter: the city they took main buildings in is key. it's the capitol of the neighboring region that's been focus. the regional administration, police building, a shootout there. a tv station is taken over as well. that city has been reasonably quiet. a real coordinated move to take over all of it. this morning, spoke to the chairman of the people's republic. that's the leader of the protesters, basically. he confirmed they have moved in against the police station. in another town, not far from where i'm standing, they will move against the enemies of the people. he laughed off european sanctions. i don't want to go there. i'm not worried by anything they can throw at me. things moving fast on the ground here. a sense of the timetable, i think distance from diplomacy and foreign capitals. the plan is regardless of the external pressure. >> nic, thanks for that. >>> a wave attacks syria leaving 50 dead in damascus and syria.
.s. officials say every day there is growing evidence that russia is putting together the unrest, even as russian officials want to repeatedly deny it. >> they want to assert that the people moving in military formation to take over buildings and then bring the local separatists in to occupy the building while they move on to another building, they assert that these people are merely local activists. as we have made clear, those kinds of claims are absurd. they defy any common sense. >> with moscow continuing to brush off american and european economic sanctions, republican and democratic lawmakers continue to urge stronger action. including accepting repeated requests from ukrainian leaders for lethal military aid. in washington today, i asked senator john mccain what that support would look like. >> you send weapons now. what kind of weapons specifically? >> look, they don't even have body armor or night vision capability. if it is all they're asking for weapons, i would give them aenlt anti-armor weapons, as well and set up a long-term assistance program. it is a morale thing with t
